Agricultural Surveys

Farm Surveys and Farmer Focus Groups

Acorn Agricultural Research is the only Irish company that specialises solely in Irish agricultural data collation and market research.  Our view is, know your niche and be the best at it.  By focusing solely on the Irish farming segment, we know we can provide you with the most accurate market information. 


Farm Surveys:  Just like all other members of society, farmers’ opinions and sentiments change.  It is only by talking to farmers that you can get an understanding as to what is happening in the marketplace.  Whether it is a quantitative survey or qualitative survey, we have the technical ability to provide you with accurate information allowing you to determine the feasibility of a business venture before you commit resources.


Farmer Focus Groups are an excellent tool in teasing out what exactly is happening in the market place.  The key to success is the ability of the facilitator to interact with the participants.  Because we specialise solely in the agricultural sector, we know how to interact with farmers, ensuring that you get high quality information on farmer sentiment towards your product or service.   


If you need an agricultural survey undertaken or wish to organise a farmer focus group, we can provide a bespoke solution that meets your needs.


We understand farmers, so you can be sure that the data you get from our surveys is of the highest quality.”
